Denver Protesters Behind Fences
The fence around the public demonstration zone outside the Democratic National Convention will be chicken wire or chain link, authorities revealed in U.S. District Court today.
That may allow protestors to be seen and heard by delegates going in and out of the Pepsi Center during the convention.
But the American Civil Liberties Union and several advocacy groups have filed an amended complaint to their lawsuit against the U.S. Secret Service and the city and county of Denver that says protestors and demonstrators may have their First Amendment rights violated by security restrictions.
The ACLU has said it wants to avoid the conditions that existed during the 2004 convention in Boston, where protesters were caged, infuriating First Amendment advocates.
Some protesters in Denver will be handled in other ways:
Placing protesters behind chicken wire and in cages is funny because it's the same criticism the Left hurled at Republicans in the past. It put the Insane Liberal Clown Posse into First Amendment histrionic rages and hissy fits. Now, they get a big, heaping, tablespoon full of their very own tasty medicine! It's Boston 2004 all over again! Karma is such a sweet thing - ain't it?
Fantastic! Laff Out Loud Funny! Booya!
Double-Booya! To the Nth-Power Booya!
